Fusoos-ul-Hikam (ringstones of wisdom) is one of the most famous books of Shaykh-ul-Akbar Ibn Arabi. It contains 27 Fusoos (chapters) each dedicated to an Islamic Prophet and his story, and takes spiritual meanings from that story. The translation is superb and scholarly by one of the great Sufi scholars of 20th century Maulana Abdul Qadeer Siddiqi, who has explained the basic theme of each story before the start of each chapter. The translation and commentary is based on the orthodox Sunni Islamic principles and was written to form a textbook for the students of Islamic knowledge in Osmania University Hyderabad (India).
